Subject: Re: [development] print token in theme layer

Thank u :) I want to have "node submit time" the exact way I want, so I checked 
out tokens available in devel(when viewing story node type) and found out there 
are already enough details I need in tokens(like small day, long day name,...). 
All I want is to <span> some of these tokens the way I want in template, I'm 
gonna check out this token_replace() to see what I can do with. maybe finish the 
job in preprocess and then use it in node-story.tpl.php 

Never done this before, not sure if it's even possible to use tokens passed to 

If I'm missing sth or there's anything u can help me with share, It's a lot time 
saver at this point. Thanks for your time :)
